tjanpi desert weavers

Animal Instinct
5 – 19 March

Tjanpi Desert Weavers, established in 1995 by the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Women’s Council, now provides an income source for more than 400 Aboriginal women artists from 28 remote western and central desert communities who work with Tjanpi. The women come together on country, collect grass, sculpt and weave, sing and dance and keep culture strong whilst creating beautiful, intricate, expressive and at times whimsical fibre art.
